The objective of the study was to obtain and analyse information on the lines of socio-labour work of third sector entities that worked with women in situations of social exclusion, especially due to unemployment. The research was carried out in the city of Valladolid (Spain) in 2017. The qualitative method used was phenomenological in nature and the semi-structured interview was used as a data collection technique. The participants chosen by snowball were nine associations of the Third Sector. Through the analysis of classical content and with the help of the CAQDAS Nvivo 12 the most relevant appreciations were categorized and coded. The main result obtained is that, despite the great efforts made by some of the entities to work in the socio-labour line, users continue to present emerging needs that must be responded to in order to achieve real and integral empowerment. In conclusion, it should be noted that the lack of social and labor orientation on the part of other entities reveals the need to invest greater resources in the line of work from the Third Sector, since there is a high level of unemployed users, with low employability and deficit of skills and management capacity of the employment portals. It is necessary to promote labour intermediation, the work of new technologies for job search and the taking of measures to reconcile family and work.
